Description

Tony Award- and MacArthur “Genius” Grant-winning director Mary Zimmerman’s breathtaking new production of Candide is the theatrical event of the season.

Featuring the music of Leonard Bernstein with contributions from the greatest lyricists of the 20th century — from Stephen Sondheim to Dorothy Parker — this outrageous musical satire tells the story of the naïve Candide, who is banished for romancing the Baron’s daughter only to be plagued by a series of absurd hardships that challenge his optimistic outlook of life and love. Candide will leave you enchanted.
